BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — With snow littered on the ground, thousands gathered in the streets of Boston in support of Ukraine on Sunday.
The rally began near the Boston Public Garden and made its way through several blocks of Newbury Street before looping back down Boylston Street to disperse where it started. Portions of Beacon Street had to be closed, as thousands of people marched in the street.
"Looking at this crowd, all I'm feeling is proud, proud of our people, of our accomplishments, and that we're all here together," rally attendee Diana Zlotnikova said.
Passing cars honked their horns, some waved Ukrainian flags out the windows, and chants for peace echoed through the city. Many rally members repeated the words, "no to war," and "Ukraine is not Russia," and at one point sang the Ukrainian national anthem.
"The rest of the world performed ritualistic condemnation, and sends their thoughts and prayers- leaving us to fight alone. The evil hearts that initiated the war are poisoned with hatred, but hate will always lose to love," Zlotnikova said.
